Quilt Show Announcement
Kim Gros has booked the conference room at the Fairborn Library for Saturday, October 16, from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. This is to work on the quilt raffle quilt. No sewing needed!!! She will have fabric markers and she just needs people willing to carefully color in the pre-quilted blocks. Kim will have sign-up sheets available at the September guild meeting. Walk-ins are welcome but would rather people sign-up in case we get bumped from the meeting room.
See you at the September meeting.

Hello to Everyone!
September’s meeting features world class landscape quilter Ann Loveless from northern Michigan. If you do not know much about Ann, you might want to take a look at her website, www.quiltsbyann.com. At her website you can see many of the different types of quilts Ann is famous for. She exhibits at many shows, and was the 2013 and 2015 first place winner of Artprize in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Ann developed three main styles of landscape quilts: Collage Quilts (which she taught to our guild several years ago), Mosaic Quilts, and Impressionistic Quilts (this year’s workshop).
Don’t miss the September meeting where you will learn about her techniques and see many of her designs. We still have a few spaces open for her workshop on Wed. Sept. 15. Just a reminder that we will have no show and tell at the September meeting. Non-members who wish to attend Ann’s lecture will be charged $10. Bring some extra money to purchase some of Ann’s goodies.
Upcoming meetings: A national speakers and teachers
In October, Sharon McConnell will join us from Color Girl Quilts to present a lecture and trunk show. Sharon creates quilt patterns, presents sewalongs, and runs her own shop. More about Sharon in my next note to the guild.
Coming in November is a lecture and trunk show by Nancy Mahoney. Nancy Mahoney will present a trunk show and teach two workshops. Her “Wild Waves” workshop is filled with a waiting list, but you can still sign up to take her “Twisted Triangles” class. Both classes are sure to be most entertaining and instructive.
